3) I saw other A6H at the workshop are same too, wondering whether we should live with it?
Mine's the same. Was wondering if it was a factory defect...

found tis in 1 forum, does it help?
8. Engine shut off with driver door open; (not really a gem per se but more of an irritating "feature" to some). On initial 2013 models at least with 0566 MMI software, it can be overridden by the dealer with a TSB software fix.

This is for safety reason.
When you stop the car (without this safety feature), the car may still running with the battery (power meter points towards READY, and the air-cond still blowing) but it is so quiet that someone may forget to press the stop button to switch off the battery.
once the battery has fully discharged, the petrol engine will start to charge the battery, then these cycle keep going on until the car is run out of fuel or the battery BURNT!

With this safety feature, on the other hand, the driver may have experience some difficulties when he/she need to get out from the vehicle, while there are passengers waiting in the car. What you can do is , after opening the door, press the start button again(with your foot on break paddle), then you get out from the vehicle and close the door. Don't lock the door from outside, as the engine will stop again, but get the front passenger to lock the door from inside, with the door lock button on the passenger side.

It's normal. the jerking is especially felt when the car was using battery on the way out from parking lot, then come to T junction where I stop(still on battery). By the time I have to accelerate, can feel the car slightly jerk twice:first when the petrol engine starts, second when the turbo kick in.
No better choice, but have to get used to it.

One month down the line, the energy recuperation braking has become smoother. The braking system has more freeplay and much predictable now.I believed all the unusual feeling of getting into a new car will gone with time.
just love the car. If anything to improved, the road noise.

the suspension seriously too soft and understeer a lot

driving experience

Post by kcho on Mon Oct 07, 2013 5:31 pm

Two weeks on the road, mainly in the city, have done 550km so far. Here is some of my personnel experience:
1)the energy recuperation (with a short pedal braking) giving an unpredictable braking force even with constant pedal pressure. this is even more obvious when brake heavily.

2) the switching from combustion engine to electrical drive is hardly noticeable, but can feel slight jerking when the engine starts again. This is especially true when I make a slow cornering (combustion engine shutdown) in to tight lane, then accelerate.

3) the suspension and tyres are getting softer over time, giving a comfort and quiet ride.
